Frei (D) räume - Envisioning Free Space: Conference + Afterparty
November 27, 11 a.m. - November 28, 05 a.m.
◥ Come join us in Berlin on November 27th for a full day of workshops, lectures & performances!
Are we really reflecting & adapting? Are our spaces and communities resilient enough for the next crises?
The termination of our self-organized free spaces is accelerated. We remain unsupported and mostly unrecognized by local governments, even as it is clear that self-organized culture will play a crucial role in facing the global crises to come.
Which role does dance, protest & reclaiming freedom of movement play to create the futures we need? The time is now to look into the historical and contemporary examples to put things in perspective and build bridges between activists, artists, political agents, urban changemakers and push reunification for meaningful alliances to enhance our resilience.
We invite you to join us for an intellectual and artistic reclamation of our futures, to challenging discussions and celebrations of radical self-expression. The time is now to build bridges between activists, artists, political agents, urban changemakers and push reunification for meaningful alliances to enhance our resilience.
